The past few weeks have felt like 1930s Germany all over again. Jews are being targeted in shops, in schools, on the streets, in airports. Yet the Biden Administration has decided to single out Islam as the religion to be protected. Here the vice-president delivers the most excruciating announcement on “hate-fueled violence”. These people seriously believe that signing documents changes how people think. BTW if you can watch her to the end you are a better man than I.
Taking on hate is a national priority.— Vice President Kamala Harris (@VP) November 1, 2023
Today, @POTUS and I are announcing the country's first National Strategy to Counter Islamophobia.

We get it, the “religion of peace” does indeed have millions who wish no harm to to Jews; but it also has many hundreds of thousands who will not rest until every last infidel – Jew, Christian, every non-Muslim – has perished. Protecting one side of the religious divide is ridiculous and un-American.
The FBI collects and publishes hate crime data but reporting is voluntary and only about 80% of agencies submit data. Antisemitic crimes were on the rise long before Oct. 7. Between 2021 and 2022, the number of antisemitic hate crimes increased by 36% to a total of 1,124 – the highest ever recorded by the FBI. “Our statistics would indicate that for a group that represents only about 2.4% of the American public, they account for something like 60% of all religious-based hate crimes.”
Amid an unprecedented wave of anti-Semitism all over America, the Biden White House decided that now was the time to announce the “first ever national strategy to counter Islamophobia”— Greg Price (@greg_price11) November 1, 2023
60% of hate crimes last year targeted Jews.
Just 9% targeted Muslims. pic.twitter.com/zlroioMdMp
